Culverts don’t last forever – Tower Access Road Upgrades

In getting my site ready for the new tower many culverts were replaced.

They had been buried 20 to 30/35 years depending on location, and I am uncertain if all of them were actually new culverts when installed.

Most were pin-holed with rust, but several had started to collapse, and here is an shot of some of the old culverts stacked waiting to be transported to the recycling scrap yard:

Rusty Culverts and the Ghosts of Culverts Past….

As typical with old culverts the ends look the best, and the weight bearing portions are pretty messed up.

Very glad to have nice new culverts to drive over now!
